Prescriptions lead to fraud charges

Staff report

A Paducah woman faces charges of fraud from an investigation that began when a pharmacist reported suspicious prescriptions, according to the Paducah Police Department.

Police said Magan McGrew, 26, attempted to use several prescriptions at  local pharmacies for controlled substances, including hydrocodone and diazepam from the same dentist. Police found the dentist had supposedly written several prescriptions for McGrew in one day and more on the following day.

Officers were notified that another prescription for hydrocodone for McGrew was called into the pharmacist by an employee of the dentist's office. McGrew was stopped in the parking lot as she attempted to pick up the drugs. McGrew allegedly called in the prescriptions and used the name of a dental office where she had formerly worked and the name of a former co-worker.

McGrew was indicted by a McCracken County grand jury and faces 34 counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or false statement. She was arrested about noon Friday and jailed.
